No need to get spooked over every little thing.
There you go, talking common sense. One thing the internet has done for us is to make it easier to find little "problems".

I'm sure there are 10's of thousands of members with Ecoboosts on the various F150 boards. IF there was a problem with carbon build up, somebody would have made a thread. Posted a picture. Others would join in with their pictures and stories like is prone to happen when there is a problem. At the risk of being a jackass......find me a thread or two.
You're chasing something that doesn't exist.....but...if it makes you feel better.
Other DI engines have carbon issues. Yes. All DI engines. No. The F150 EcoBoosts. No.
I get what you are saying... But they don't make DI Ecoboost engines any longer for a reason, and we can just leave it at that. I'm a pragmatic person, I just will keep doing my Italian tuneup and using Techron, and it WILL make me feel much better.

JDXer is starting off with a positive reputation.
No amount of injector cleaner is going to clean the oil build up (if it even happens) on the intake valves because there is no fuel injector in the port for it to go through on first gen Ecos!

They still call them GTDI's - DI = Direct Injection, and there are still direct injectors and HPFP in the Gen II's.

Also, I'm not so sure what they are doing in the automotive side - 3.0's, 2.0's, etc, all the Ecoboosts are listed as GTDI's in Ford literature, as far as I can tell. To say "they aren't making DI motors any more" is kind of a misnomer

I think 🤔 you’re wrong about that.
Have a great evening.

They're still GTDI, except that Gas Turbo Direct Injection now is Gas Turbo Dual Injection.

The 2.7 and 3.5 Ecoboost engines are NOW Dual injection (port and direct combined)...NOT just direct injection as before. I mean, I am not making this stuff up unless I am reading fake news. I didn't see where it came from CNN, but guess you never know.
